10 photos of street art in Toronto on Instagram

Posted by Derek Flack / May 17, 2013

Street Art TorontoEver noticed the preponderance of graffiti photos on Instagram? It makes sense, I suppose. While most people wouldn't make a dedicated trip to shoot street art with their DSLR, the act of taking a quick cellphone pic is a completely different story. Well executed graffiti is, to some degree, what Instagram was made for. As such, there's a great archive of images to peruse online. So, in an effort to show a little love for Toronto street art, we asked our Instagram followers to share their favourite street art photos with the hashtag #grafTO. Here are 10 of the best.

For all them instagramming/I-like-to-take-photos-with-my-phone people: There's an app that was made in San Francisco recently called "1AM" where you can take pics of street art and then geotag them for others to find.

I might actually start to go through my old pictures and upload my Toronto street art pics into the app.

It'll be nice when this Instagram fad is over. It's more or less the sepia epidemic of the early 2000s, when people who owned digital cameras for the first time applied the sepia setting on everything until it became comical and people tired of it.
